Hello there!

My name is Yuxuan (Matt) Jiang. I am a senior undergraduate student majoring in Computer Engineering at Zhejiang University - University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign joint institute.

My research interest lies in distributed systems. My vision is to make computing power an accessible infrastructure for everyone, by pushing the efficiency, reliability and security of distributed systems.

I am currently working with Prof. Tianyin Xu at UIUC and Prof. Owolabi Legunsen at Cornell University on software reliability issues in container orchestration systems. I am also working with Dr. Shilin He at Microsoft Research Asia on configuration management issues in cloud systems.

Besides research and coding, I enjoy singing (I am a bass singer), mountain biking, making friends and speeding on my skateboard across the campus.


Jan 9, 2022 Arrived in Urbana-Champaign for the 2022SP exchange program! Looking forward to meeting friends and working with people offline!
Oct 9, 2021 Selected to be a mentor for international freshmen who cannot come to China due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nice to meet you all!
May 1, 2021 Enrolled in UIUC’s Undergraduate Research Experience (REU). Great experience hacking systems and learning Computer Science with Prof. Tianyin Xu!
